“I Was There – A Musical Journey”. Now on Amazon and Kindle!


Finally! All the tweaks and formatting done. The page index revised, then revised again.  “I Was There – A Musical Journey”, the story of my musical life, is now available on Amazon and Kindle. You can see the Amazon page at this link if you are a UK reader:


Wherever you are, just go to Amazon books and type I Was There John Sills into the search box. Amazingly, it’s there! And you can preview the first couple of chapters, in Kindle format.

The print copy isn’t the cheapest, but it’s value for money – you get 752 pages. It’s a book you can dip into, to read about your favourite artists – a lot of them will be there, unless you only like prog rock! Or there might be people you don’t know about, who might interest you. Or you can read the whole story, enjoy the narrative, share with me a love of music and what it means to our lives.

And it’s the perfect Christmas present for any music-obsessive friends or family members!

So please have a read and tell your friends about it if you think it’s any good.

Many thanks for your support for this blog over the years – this moment is the culmination of all the effort, the reason I began in 2011. I’ll keep blogging of course – already have two more concerts to tell you about. And there are more publications in the pipeline…

Yours in music.



About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. I’ve written a novel called “The Decision”, a futuristic political thriller, and first of a trilogy. I’m also the author of a book on music since the 1970s called “ I Was There - A Musical Journey” and a volume of poetry about youth, “Growin’ Up - Snapshots/ Fragments”. All available on Amazon and Kindle.

    Reblogged this on Queen's end and commented:
    This is the only source you will ever need to know all about popular music from 1970 – 2015. John charts his journey with passion. This book is factual & entertaining all at once!
